    Cocktails were a little light, especially for the price. The portions were big but taste was not anything special. The salmon came with a flavorless farro salad. It has a teriyaki sauce on top that I could have made myself with less sugar. The fried chicken was huge and the accompaniments nothing special. We didn’t try dessert. Our server, Leonardo was attentive, friendly and did a great job.

    The restaurant was crowded and busy. There were maybe 2 waitress. We were seated promptly. There was a delay in taking our order. The waiter did not ask us for our drink order. He only took our food order. He was handling a lot of tables at one time. I finally asked the manager if he could get our drinks. It took a while for our food to come out. We both ordered the chicken sandwich. Mine with the side salad and my friends with fries. The side salad was very good. The problem was the sandwich which was always very good. Yesterday it was dry and the reason was the cook forgot to put the aioli sauce on both sandwiches and the red onion was left off. I called the waiter over to let him know and asked if we could get some aioli. He went back to the kitchen to get it and brought it back. Yesterday was not a good day and I was disappointed in the way the sandwich came out with 2 main items missing.

    My girlfriend and I were looking for a nice place to dress up with a nice ambiance. The reviews convinced me to make it our date night spot. I was going to be late for the reservation because of an event happening at Centennial Park and when I called the hostess adjusted my reservation with no problem. The environment was clean, and the presentation of the food was colorful and delicious. Highly recommend!

    This place is fantastic! The hostess was extremely attentive and offered great recommendations. We loved the calamari and fried green tomatoes appetizer. I dined on this salmon that was moist, tender, flavorful and perfectly done while being a thick cut. Then my desert was cheesecake - beats out Juniors!

    We had a group of 8. The waitress didn't write down orders and missed 2 sides. The meals came out sporadically over 15 minutes. Sea scallops were definitely not fresh. Sushi dishes were also leaving a lot to be desired for freshness. Overall poor experience for a business dinner.

    Food was great! Ambience was nice. Servers were great (laid back, but still professional). Reason for a 4-star...it was just too loud. I was sitting in the middle of an 8-top and couldn't hear the person at the end.

    Poor customer service. Was not able to contact restaurant regarding reservation. Phone ring unanswered all the time for about 20 attempts. Would definitely not recommend this restaurant. Food was average but waiter was unaware of almost everything regarding the menu. Disappointed for a birthday dinner.

    Service was terrible. Waited 20 min before anyone came to take our drink order. Didn’t deliver a menu until 30 min into sitting. Had to ask for refills every single time. Seating was crazy uncomfortable. The only thing that save the food was that the sushi was phenomenal.

    What a disappointing experience. My daughter chose this restaurant because of the cool pictures and she wanted good food from a downtown Atlanta restaurant. The restaurant was packed when we arrived, but we were seated right away. In general, the decor is nice, however, the seats in the window benches were in terrible condition. They were split and pealing. The bathrooms were not clean, some didn’t have toilet e, others didn’t have paper towels. They are dark (black walls and toilet). The lack of proper lighting could be an issue for some. The service…unbelievably slow and disappointing. It took us 5 minutes to get utensils and napkins after receiving our food. The server was kind but obviously irritated that we asked for things that we should have had anyway, like the avocado on the chicken sandwich or mayonnaise for a burger and ketchup for fries. The food…not the same menu that my daughter found on the internet, but still had decent options. We chose to split two entrees. The grilled chicken sandwich and the burger. We both had the lemon Parmesan cheese fries. The chicken was charred and dry. The burger was ordered medium well. It was medium on the outer edge, but medium rare in the middle. Yes, we both got sick. The fries were crispy and delicious, but I think I prefer plain fries better. I shook off most of the cheese. Overall, I would not return, but do hope the restaurant will update and clean the things I have addressed and discuss with the servers the need to think ahead what their customers may need. The other issue I had was how long it took for them to clear the tables. The restaurant looked awful with food that had dropped on the tables and many tables not cleaned in 45 minutes after the customers left.

    We had a group of 22 for lunch. The restaurant was very vibrant and energetic; in other words, sort of loud. However, everyone enjoyed their food and our server did an excellent job. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken on top. My only small complaint is that the chicken was a bit overdone. Other than that, the salad was delicious and fresh. The restaurant itself is very modern looking and is quite cute. I imagine at nighttime it's a great place for a date, as we drove by later in the evening and the lighting inside looked amazing. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

    Honestly, we found our meal to be okay. But, they were out of several items, told us the kitchen was closing at 4, rushed us out the door and charged us full price for meals that did not contain the items reflected in their menu (Cobb Salad for example came without blue cheese or bacon and was just chicken and lettuce.) And they charged full price anyhow, to all 3 people who ordered that dish. It was fine but not the experience we had hoped for.

    We used a coupon to eat at Thrive. The service was good and the appetizers (including the sushi pot stickers) were tasty. However, the main course (tuna burger and fries) was adequate and not as well cooked as other similar restaurants.
